    How Many Cameras

    TOP is running a poll on how many cameras you own: The Online Photographer: Time for a Poll: Cameras

    Any interest in answers here? At first I thought I was near the bottom, and then decided my iPhone, and laptop cams might count. And what if you have two ALPA bodies, but only one back?

    Re: How Many Cameras

    Guy, it's only currently owned, not how many you have ever owned. That number would be really scary. As would cameras per year.

    Re: How Many Cameras

    One question my wife asked me was: How many more cameras do you need?

    Women, they have a sneaky way of asking questions that has no right answers

    Re: How Many Cameras

    I actually made a list of mine a couple months ago. I would be embarrassed to share the numbers, considering that I still have almost every camera I have ever owned.

    Two, too many...always. Or, is that two, too few? I can never remember.

    Re: How Many Cameras

    So many cameras, so little time.

    To my credit, this is the first time in a decade that I only have one Leica M. I think that may change come Photokina.

    Re: How Many Cameras

    Overheard in a fly fishing shop as a man obsessed over the latest/greatest rod: WIFE: "how many fly rods do you need?" HUSBAND: "Just one more."

    A more embarrassing poll might be "how many camera BAGS do you own".

    Best,
    Tim

    Re: How Many Cameras

    Oooops... easily making the sixth level there, not counting those that don't work. Most are film though, but except for a couple of restoration projects I use them all, although some not as often as I'd wish.

    Three. A couple of 5Dc's and a 20D backup. Do I win an award for the least and oldest?
